Also....... For those dash and tail light bulbs (IF your updaing to leds) always go with the color bulb that matches the lense color, a good tip superbrightled advised me to do, there correct, wouldn't want a pink tail light..... Lol

Have you happened to swap out for led already on the tail and indicator lights?

I cant seem to find one that matches dimensions and I heard that the indicator lights are packed in thereright. .

What is the size of the OEM headlights? Also, how do they mount? I can try and think of something that would work.

Yeah. IMO much better and brighter then oem.... I'll get you the pics/part number of the ones i installed, the dash LEDs need to shine straight at the lense, and not those 360 degree angle LEDs and the tail light led bulb is the longest that would fit in the housing, IT'S 360 degree angle led.

Ok so I think I may have found a color variety pack of compatable bulbs in terms of base and dimensions. Trying to stay cheap here (I already way overblew my budget to get this thing repaired)

Can someone double check this before I order?

I know they are not water resistant bulbs, but I think I will just put a thin layer of silicone on the cap and call it a day (and worst case I have 9 more replacements, and I update post saying they are Chinese garbage)

So here are stock bulbs:

Here is my led option:

the link to the LEDs you posted ...... Will fit the tail light socket, but not the dash rubber weather boots, the diameter of the head of the head is too big, LEDs for the 3 dash lights have to be close tp oem bulb size.

Alright, i figured the difference between the 11mm stock bulb diameter and the led one (12mm) would not be that much of a big deal, but I will deffer to you.

I guess i will keep looking.

Edit:
How about these?

If you wouldnt mind waiting until this afternoon i can talk to a buddy of mine that is big into automotive lightning upgrades, retrofits and custom lighting. Not only does it built custom lights he also sells only high quality products. I can ask him his thoughts on what LEDs to buy. Granted they probably wont be as cheap as those eBay lights but would be much brighter and better quality.
